While it's not the first post-pig Lovelight, it is the first for a "regular" show, and this show marks the point when Lovelight is reintroduced to regular rotation, not to be again forgotten. There is a pretty big stylistic difference in how Bobby did it 18 months prior to this night. He seems much more confident that it is going to be his song, and not a cover of what Pig did.

Fun times fun listen
Sounds good to me. Although I prefer great aud tapes this good sound. Reason why I like a good aud is because every show I ever attended I could hear crowd noise which brings me back to the scene.These 2 shows were alot of fun. The board goes in and out with aud but sounds great all the same. I am not a perfection guy cant have it all the time so why bothe. Progress is more my style which this version has. Thank you for REALLY GOOD TIME.
Not sure if really was a playboy mansion but was rumored to be in nearby Geneva,was a great place had its own golf coarse and even had sceete shooting. Not that any of took part in the sceet shooting but was intense hotel/mansion.Pricey but remember we made money everyday back then and some days were better then others.

20 years ago today (7-26-90) we lost Brent. I am going to listen to this Brent era show tonight and review it tomorrow. RIP Brent. I like this show and sound. Jerry's voice is a little rough. He did lots of things that are bad for the voice. Cigarettes, cocaine and singing so damn much just to name a few.

considering 1984 is THE year where Garcia's habits cannot be hidden anymore this show shows some great musicianship despite his rampant physical decline. maybe that's why the 80's always get me curious. the echo in the voices in brother esau and BEW really tweak me out, pretty awesome. where are the sbd of the night before?

Awesome post space
The other day I got hold of the tapers section, Vol. 1-38. Anways They had the post Space tunes from this show and man it blew me away. The Dear MR. Fantasy is cool because both jerry and Brent share the vocal duties. The band just keeps up a torid pace from there. With Garcia and Mydland really leaning into some crisp and melodic texture. Black Peter is a bit jumpy for such a somber song. As they verge into Why Don't We Do It In The Road. The band gets downright nasty chomping through the Lennon/McCartney number. They start the playing the intro to Around, Around,and end up changing thir preference to nice Sugar Magnolia which by the end Weir sounds like Doc RIvers after the celtics won the championship. Anyways Post space is great. I would recomen this show for that forty plus minutes alone
